He also accused the trucks of smuggling  Boko Haram fighters, other insurgents, and herdsmen into the south every day.

He ended by asking: “What is Aliko Dangote up to?”

He wrote: “Why do Dangote trucks kill more people in a month in Nigeria than COVID-19 and malaria and how come they get away with it?”

“Why are they smuggling thousands of almajiris, ISWA, and Boko Haram fighters and Fulani herdsmen into the south every day? What is Aliko Dangote up to?

Meanwhile, Aliko Dangote, Africa’s richest man , has refuted allegations that his company’s trucks were being used to transport Almajiris from the Northern part of Nigeria to the South.

The refutal was contained in a letter by Dangote, dated May 27 and addressed to the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, John Nwodo, released on Wednesday night by Emeka Attama, Nwodo’s media assistant.

The letter entitled, ‘Allegation of illegal haulage against Dangote Industries Ltd’, was signed by Anthony Chiejina, Group Chief Communications Officer.

Dangote Industries denied the allegations and appealed to the public to expose those carrying out such illegal activities.

Dangote insisted that its trucks are permitted to transport only cement, limestone, high grade gypsum, sugar, salt, seasoning, and branded sacks/bags.

The letter urged members of the public to report any Dangote truck driver involved in such illegal activities, adding details such as truck type, content, colour, plate number, location, and if possible, photographs.
